I am making what I thought would be simple quilts for my nephew's twins due in March. They have been a nightmare from the start. I used several different flannels to make 4-patch blocks and every other block is soft and bumpy stuff that I thought would add nice texture. Well, after pressing my seams I found that the heat ironed out the bumps. I was so bummed! The 2nd quilt did not get any pressing. The soft bumpy stuff is very stretchy so the blocks are misshapen. I decided to stitch the quilts together and turn them inside out. That was a total disaster with all the stretching so I ripped that all out. Now I have them sandwiched and I am going to tie them because quilting would be impossible. So, here's my question: Do I tie them first and bind after or bind first and tie after?
